TheRide works to ensure the safety and security of our riders and employees. This includes hiring and training employees, operating and maintaining vehicles, and identifying and eliminating or controlling safety hazards during the operation of transit service, construction, and maintenance. In order to measure this, we track the number of accidents that TheRide vehicles are involved in as well as passengers’ perceptions of safety.
